'When a blossom is much more than a flower, but a symbol of unity, hope & ultimately love'

My daughter was diagnosed with stage iv neuroblastoma in June 2012. One day in the hospital we were sent some 'Brooke's Blossoms' from an Irish mum of a child with cancer who was a friend of the founder. From there grew the beginning of Brooke's Blossoms in Ireland. My daughter delightedly handed out the flowers to other children on the ward when the foundation so generously sent them to us, bringing smiles, joy & colour to children at the most difficult of times.
The seeds of a dear friendship were sown as Brooke & my daughter became great buddies when spending time together in the hospital in America.
A dear friendship bloomed between the founder of the charity & I as she shared her incredible knowledge of neuroblastoma with me.
You see, a blossom is much more than a headpiece, it is a gesture of love, reaching out to children & parents at the most lonely & terrifying time.
Brooke's Blossoms has always supported the 'go gold' campaign to raise awareness of childhood cancer & has sent many gold blossoms to Ireland that are worn the length & breath of this little island.
Awareness=funding=research=a cure.
My sweet little lady was rarely seen without a blossom during her treatment for cancer, the beautiful headpieces adorned her bald little head always, making her feel like the special little beauty she is.
Thank you 'Brooke's Blossoms' , for everything you do, in what can feel like a jungle your blossoms shine brightly.

My life was turned upside down when my 1 year old was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. We flew across the country to meet with a new doctor. The best part of that trip---hands down---was meeting the Blossoms behind this nonprofit: Brooke and her mother. They gave us a blossom, a smile, and friendship unparalleled. They continue to bless countless others through their multiple ways of sharing.

Brooke's Blossoming Hope has brought so many smiles to so many families in need of them. It's founder, Brooke, is my personal hero, and she is a constant reminder to me that I have plenty of reasons to stay happy and push through the negative. This foundation helps raise so much money towards awareness and research for childhood cancers, and is 100% volunteer led and uses 100% of proceeds towards childhood cancer elimination.

Brooke's Blossoming Hope for Childhood Cancer has done & continues to do so much for Childhood cancer. Not only do they bring hope & smiles to the faces of children & their families fighting the fight, but they also bring awareness & funds to research & prayerfully find a cure. When I met Brooke & Jessica, I knew right away how special they were. With their faith & continued dedication to this cause, I know a cure will be found.

Brooke and this foundation changed my life... I used to selfishly turn a blind eye when it came to childhood cancer. It was something that was too painful for me to think about. When I first stumbled across this organization on Facebook and I saw the smiles the blossoms put on children's faces, I decided I wanted to donate financially (but that was it)...apparently God had other plans! The day that I went to drop off a check, I met Brooke. She was such a light- like an angel on this earth. I knew immediately that I wanted to do more than just donate. I wanted to volunteer my time making these blossoms. Well once you start, you can't stop! It has truly been one of the most rewarding experiences for me. I was asked to serve on a committee for one of the fundraisers, and recently became a Brooke's Blossoming Hope board member. After meeting Brooke, there was just no way I couldn't do more... I think so many people feel helpless in these situations so they shy away from getting involved. I did. I never knew that childhood cancer was the number one disease killer in children and that it's grossly underfunded. Brooke's Blossoming Hope not only educated me on this horrible reality, it taught me that I could personally make a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer- even just raising awareness is HUGE! I will NEVER stop being a voice.

Smiles to those who design and put together hundreds of head blossoms and head coverings for children all over the world fighting this dreaded disease.

Great Foundation! Brooke was an amazing little girl, and an inspiration to everyone she met. The foundation brings smiles and hope to children with cancer and their families. I love seeing the looks on kids faces when they receive a "blossom" or a cape and crown. I am grateful everyday that I get to be part of this wonderful foundation.

I was a valet driver to park cars for people that would attend to hear about Brooke's Blossoms or at place that Brooke would be at, at several events. Brooke would always say hi and talk to me briefly. She would give me a "Blossom of the Day" This girl would always have a smile - it did not matter who you were.

I have also gotten to able to talk to her parents, mainly her mom at these events and you can tell that is where Brooke's genuine passion of life came from. I was privileged to drive her Dad to an event when Brooke was out of town for medical reasons. He preferred to have Brooke and Jessica speak at these events, he stated several times that speaking was not in his comfort zone. When the subject was changed to just small talk about family and life, he beamed with the love he had with his family.

This organization started on a passion to find a cure and it continues. Brooke can no longer be healed but they want every child to be cured from cancer. They do not want anyone to have to go through what they did and they know that research and funding is needed to continue find a cure.

When attending Brooke's services, it was sad but there was joy, Brooke has made a huge impact, not only my life but thousands and continues through this foundation.

I have followed this charity since its inception. In my opinion this is one of the best and most important foundations established for our precious children who have cancer. Not only does it provide a little joy and color in sick children's lives but also provides much needed money for research.

Brooke was an amazing inspiration and this foundation is doing wonderful things! As a volunteer and distributor I have witnessed first hand how the kids' days are brightened when they recurve a blossom and that's only one side of this nonprofit - they also are raising money for targeted research.
